I wanted to ask my closest friends to be my bridesmaids in a cute but cost-effective way. A bottle of wine or champagne seems to be a popular choice these days but I wanted to do something different. The idea popped up when I was organizing my beauty closet. A gal can never turn down lip gloss! My friends over at Stila Cosmetics sent me a gracious package of their best selling lip gloss trios in dessert-inspired shades with sweet scents to match including Kiss & Pout (a medley of pink and caramel neutrals) and Read My Lips (pictured above). A perfect way for a beauty blogger bride-to-be to say, “Now, it’s my turn to pop the question…” I wrapped the trios up in tissue paper tied up with recycled ribbon and included a personal note. I spotted this adorable stationery at Home Goods. I can never say no to green and polka dot prints. I’m still in the process of asking some of my friends to be in the wedding but hopefully they say yes!
For all my married readers, how did you ask your friends/family to be in your wedding?
